Abstract ABSTRACT: This paper presents a new framework for designing and managing urban parks that focuses on user experiences. The key variables in this Nature People Experiences framework are physical settings, activities and the interactions between them. The framework can also be applied to buildings and sites, leading to more sustainable cities by connecting people to “nature ” experiences directly from buildings. The author further speculates that the visible use of passive energy strategies that harness wind and sun can be associated in building occupants ’ minds with positive nature experiences and in that way contribute restorative benefits to both people and the environment.
